Hey SB--thanks for all that history above; seriously. I knew we initially "clashed", then connected, but it has been lost in the deep history of the Forum...this explains how that happened, and I always wondered how you knew so confidently what was what in this regard.

Not that I should really get involved in all of this crap but it's obvious now I was really not prepared to be a real PM, as I am outta my element with this stuff!

The truth is William - what I described above is just the tip of the iceberg.

I can tell you from being an admin at TA - there is no way to properly describe the bizarre characters that come out of the woodwork and try to gain favor with a site by doing some very weird shit to impress the admins. Its not a knock on anyone, its just that I believe percieved authority makes people act in such a way they may not usually act. Again, this is just my opinion but I am in fact guilty of doing the exact same thing 3 years ago with Koch. I look back like, WTF? Yet now I can easily understand how and why. Such is life I suppose.

Dont sell yourself short William - You would be a good admin. The nuttiness just takes a little while to get used to, then it becomes second nature.
